1. TEXAS OBSERVER, LOST AND FOUND IN SAN LEON

    Writer Michael Hoinski and I had a great time drinking, eating oyster poboys, and shooting rifles while getting to know the locals and gathering material for this story about politics and life in an outlaw town on the Texas coast -  ”Lost and Found in San Leon" - in the current issue of The Texas Observer.

  4. TRAVEL + ESCAPE MAGAZINE, NEW ORLEANS

    In honor of Mardi Gras, here is the cover I shot for the current Travel + Escape issue back in January while doing a story on the music clubs of Frenchman St. 

    It’s always fun to do work in New Orleans. On this occasion, I was stranded for a day due to weather so I gave myself an assignment to shoot street performers in the Quarter. Several of these ended up in the issue, including my favorites above.
    Previous stories for Travel + Escape:  Gulf Crabbing, and Late Night Austin.  Other recent New Orleans trips:  this story on cocktails for Spirit Magazine, and the cover image for James Carville and Mary Matalin’s new book Love & War by Penguin Books.

  8. TEXAS MONTHLY, ODD DUCK and VITTLES

    The same issue also features seafood gumbo for the Vittles column. Prepared by stylist/photographer Kate LeSueur, it was so good we made an extra batch and served it at our annual holiday oyster roast.

  10. THE OFFICIAL FERRARI MAGAZINE, DWIGHT HOWARD

    Finding a great location for a shoot in downtown Houston was the biggest challenge of this shoot for The Official Ferrari Magazine. I’m not a basketball fan so I didn’t know that Dwight Howard was a standout player for the Houston Rockets. 

    Wow is he tall. And a really nice guy. Thanks to Dwight, his crew of handlers and bodyguards, to restaurants Bar Annie and Philippe, and to assistant Sean Johnson for the long day.
